The Book of Me, Written By You - Prompt 1: Who Are You?


The Book of Me, Written By You
Prompt 1: Who Are You? 

"The Book of Me, Written By You" is a GeneaBloggers project created by Julie Goucher of the Anglers Rest blog. The concept: a series of blogging and writing prompts that help family historians capture their own memories and write about themselves.

Ask yourself 20 times "Who are you?" Each time you should give yourself a different answer. May have more than 20.

My comments: I was careful not to look at details of others before I started writing them down. Wonder what I forgot? Have you tried it?

Families are Forever!

  1. Great list. It's funny how many words describe who we are and our relationship to others. Makes me think of all the different ways we can explore our ancestors lives.

  5. Bill, I have done this and seems mine has more points of interest. They of course vary from person to person. It was a gift I did for family about five years ago before we lost my Mom. Everyone got a copy of the people I did.
    One family member uses it ever so often for the school children to answer questions.
